Medieval Day 11-4pm

Medieval Day 11-4pm


Medieval Fun Day at the priory is dedicated to our building’s medieval period, spanning from Norman to Tudor times. From the founding of the priory to its dissolution, we will explore the lives of the people at the priory, from their daily routine to their place in the life of the city of Exeter.

Come and join us to learn all about stone carving and masonry from Paul Ellis!

New this year are our medieval prilgrims – I am sure they have some interesting stories up their sleeves!

Bessie, the serving woman, will also be with us to tell you all about women’s lives and works in medieval times.

Children’s activities and costumes to try on from 11-4pm!

This event is free with a suggested donation of £5 per person. Let us know you are coming and donate online here
